    From CALIFORNIA POLITICAL REVIEW:

    Feinstein’s Gun Ban Bill Exempts Government Officials
    January 26, 2013 By Katy Grimes

    An interesting tidbit came out of Thursday’s big announcement by Sen. Dianne Feinstein about her newest gun ban legislation. The bill would exempt “weapons used by government officials.”

    Feinstein officially proposed banning 157 different makes and models of “military-style” assault rifles, pistols, shotguns and semi-automatic weapons, and also proposes to outlaw firearms with fixed ammunition clips that hold more than 10 rounds. And she wants “military-style” looking guns banned. Those are scary.

    The Weekly Standard has this story.

    “Mrs. Feinstein’s measure would exempt more than 2,200 types of hunting and sporting rifles; guns manually operated by bolt, pump, lever or slide action; and weapons used by government officials, law enforcement and retired law enforcement personnel,” the Washington Times reports.

    Notably, Feinstein’s bill is an expanded version of her 1994 gun ban, because many anti-gun activists believed that the 1994 bill was full of holes.

    Feinstein’s new gun ban would cover many more firearm models than the 1994 ban – 157 guns, to be exact.

    The Daily Caller captured the list in a screen shot showing the specific firearm models that would be prohibited under the new ban:

    “Feinstein staged a dramatic press conference Thursday on Capitol Hill with 10 weapons at her side and unveiled legislation instituting a government ban on more than 150 types of firearms, including rifles, pistols and shotguns,” Alex Papas with the Daily Caller reported.

    The bill is co-sponsored by California Sen. Barbara Boxer and 13 other Democrats.

    Of course they exempt themselves from every piece of legislation that puts more of a burden on their subjects, it's just fair they are so much more important than us

    Might be a good issue to take to the Supreme Court.

    I think there was a decision some time back said they must live under the same laws they create for us.

    Again, another example of their elitism, we cannot be trusted.

    Just look at the clowns around her!!

    Just read history on Communism, "government" always get the "exemptions" from following the law.

    That why the Founders gave us a Republic!

    You can't control PEOPLE if they can fight back!!

    Bolt should be okay and even if not, law enforcement people are exempt, although I am not sure what that means, unless it means exempt from registration.

    When bill is introduced next week and posted to read, we will all know.
